Re: Not able to turn off "motion is detected" on Doorbell motion settings?
On the doorbell motion setting I turned it on, but I’m unable to turn it off. When I go to the motion settings under the doorbell, I checkmarked the motion trigger alerts . I’m unable to uncheck it. Hope this makes sense. Thx
I have the same issue and can’t turn off the motion detection “feature” of the doorbell (which is working well anyway). It appears to be an “issue” (bug?) in both the iOS app and when using the browser based app. Yes I do have the latest version of app and iOS. I do also have the app installed on an Android device (also latest version) and the ability to turn motion detection on or off seems to be working in there.
No. I’m saying I can’t uncheck the top option on the page which is “Motion Triggered Alerts”. It was working weeks ago but it no longer works. This also doesn’t work when trying by using Chrome browser on my laptop. Yes. I have downloaded the most recent update of the app which is V2.7.6
Thanks for clarifying for which one you cannot turn off. I have raised this up to the development team and they're currently looking into this. Once we hear with more information, we'll be sure to update the community. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
Updating everyone here where unchecking the "Motion Triggered Alerts" will not trigger the motion detection to be turned off on the Arlo Audio Doorbell. This setting is used to turn on/off the notification alerts (push notifications and email notifications).
Same issue for me. It seems to be an issue with numerous people in many of these threads. It’s the same way in both the iOS app and if logging in via a browser on my laoptop. On the browser version the option and checkbox is grayed out and you can’t click it. Once you turn the option On you can’t turn it off. I know I was able to uncheck that and turn off the option when I first got the doorbell a few months ago but not anymore. I feel it became an issue in one of the more recent releases of the app. I’ve reported it to arlo support but have not received a reply so maybe they don’t believe me.
Another update where our development team is looking into this issue where users are unable to disable the "motion is detected" for iOS. We'll be sure to inform the community when we hear any new information from our team.
I have the same problem on my doorbell.
After I activated the motion trigger allert, I can't turn it off. The option is greyed in both the ios app and the website.
It's very important that you fix this bug because the battary draining with motion trigger always active is massive (I had to change the battery after three weeks of use!).
I attach the picture in italian.
Wow... how long will it take Arlo to fix this bug. I have workers at the house and am tired of 40-50 alerts a day. I called twice to customer support on Friday (3 May 2019) and they were uterly clueless concerning this issue (spent over 45 minutes on the phone). They just told me that they action alert was the default for the doorbell and can't be changed. Clueless.
If I had not invested over $1500 into this system between cameras, base stations, etc and did not depend on the doorbells (I replaced an old intercom system), they would be soooo gone.
Please fix this!!
I want to update everyone that you should be able to turn off the "motion is detected" on your iOS devices with the latest Arlo app, which is version 2.7.10. Make sure to update to the latest version on your iOS devices.
